Ugly Knit Socks Can Make Your Feet Look Huge Because of the Patterns Variegated Yarn Creates!!

Here's my ugly knit socks I made using variegated yarn that created the pooling patterns. I mentioned a few posts ago but actually, they don't look as bad as I thought they did when made that post. To see that post and the knit socks, click on the link. They're not as ugly on my feet compared to just looking at them in the drawer! It's weird how the foot on th right looks so much better than the foot on the left. The pattern is larger so maybe that's why. And the right one is the bigger size, too. I'm still disappointed but I still love wearing them which is mostly to bed to keep my feet warm!
Any commnts? After all, they were my first pair of socks I've ever knitted. This isn't a very good photo but it's a good lookin' heel!

Heheh good job on the socks. if I could knitt socks I would have soo many socks!! I love SOCKS! I am a horrible judge when it comes to my own feet. Guess being called Poontoon (sp) foot when I was lil was not too good for the self foot image.

Tiff :)

Thank you for the vote! :)
I like your socks, I think you did a great job on them. I found out that the color has a whole lot to do with how they look too. A member at my crochet board gifted me with the sock yarn, It was a nice surprise :)
Where do I vote at? I am not finding it.

The socks are not at all ugly! I love them.

thank you Knitman! I wanted striped socks and really hate that pooling effect. Just a little disappointed in them. They're very comfortable and warm but the big one is a little baggie! Thank you again.
